Okay, sorry nothing's been updated for a while! Geez! There just isn't much going on. It's Wintertime, and we're all profoundly depressed; but that's hardly news, now, is it?

As a means to avoid them blues, we're playing a show at Logan Square Auditorium here in Chicago on Friday, January 7th. We may even have hot spiced cider on hand - that'll cheer you up. Even if you're on the ledge, ready to jump, hot spiced cider will pull you right back in. Hell, even if you're in the air! It's that good. So come to the show.


I'm trying to think of what all I can post here. I know you're all planning on going to the small flock of rock shows that's coming up in the next couple of weeks, so I won't mention them. Instead I'll mention this article where Andy says some stuff. Damn, I can't think of much else. Can you believe we're still a rock band? It's been many, many years now. Come February I'll have been in this band for 15 years. That is terrible, terrible news.


From what I've heard, our new record, It'll Be Cool, is officially released today. Hot balls! I don't have all the information about it just yet, but I will soon, please believe me, I will. And we'll have it for sale, I bet you $1 we will. There's other news, too, but I'm going to wait a few days before I post that news because I want to get some photographs developed. Otherwise you may not believe me. So - more news coming soon. We've got some shows coming up in November, too, so pay attention!


Has it been that long? I've been investing all my time - that's right, all of it - in writing the tour journals, so read those before you accuse any of us of being lazy, or worthless, or anything else.

I'm going to do a little cross-promotion here, hopefully no one will mind. For the past nearly three years, I've been editing a full-length documentary by Vickie Hunter (or Midgett-Hunter - Vickie is Tim's, you know, wife) and Heather Whinna (you may know her as a producer). The film is about Christian indie rock. It's called "Why Should the Devil Have All the Good Music?" You can read about the film here. It's premiering on August 22nd, and playing again on August 23rd, as part of the Chicago Underground Film Festival. You should all try to attend. That is all I will say about that.

We've got a record called "It'll Be Cool" that's coming out on September 14th. We've got some shows coming up after that, which I won't say much about until I know more about them. Babies will be born and weddings will be celebrated - but I'll talk about that when there's more to say. I just got back from a long weekend in gloriously sunny Seattle, and here in Chicago it's pouring rain and storm and wind, and I would like to be sleeping.


It's a sunny day in Chicago, Illinois. I just finished talking to a fellow in Columbus, Ohio, about the history of our rock band, about our love for Columbus, about other bullshit. I wanted to be funny, but it didn't work out - I may have said three funny things. That's not good enough.

This is just a simple way of saying that we're playing two shows in Ohio this coming weekend (Bowling Green and Columbus), and that we're playing four shows in Japan in July (two shows in Tokyo, one in Osaka and one in Kobe). You can read about any of these events by clicking on the eyeball.

That's all for now. We will see you soon.

And not only that - I just realized that the blather on this web page goes back... let's see how long... over seven years. First blather is from Missoula, Montana on April 30th, 1997. That was actually before this site existed, but still.
